Reunion Time

If you can find Henry H. Fellows, and his wife, Belle Lamunion on your family tree, you are invited to the reunion of their descendants. I once wrote about some treasures in Belles box. Historically, Belles family “got together”, but sometime later the reunion of what was then the Fellows family, was called a Fenton reunion. Two of Henry and Belles children married siblings named Fenton. Henry was born 3 Augus

Moving Right Along

I feel disconnected from the this blog right now, having spent the last week on other things. Some reports for my genealogy society, some other work for that cause, a trip to Lansing to protest (so 60’s), and a family reunion. Now all that is water over the dam. I’m going continue on my quest to fulfill my New Year’s resolutions. Let me see, what was that? 1. Enter all the information from the BOX into my database. No except…

Fellows Family Land Records, Wexford County, Michigan Liber 87 page 383

This entry is part 61 of 99 in the series Deeds in the Family

…the same day Charlie and Belle married, apparently in a judge’s chambers at the courthouse. A closer look shows that Lester and Sarah Stone were the witnesses. Oh. Although Charlie Tinker’s obituary gave an earlier year for their marriage, I am convinced that the actual date was 15 July 1914. One little postcard shows how valuable various fragments of evidence can become. In the collection from Belles box, I wrote about a post…

2009 Resolutions, Progress?

The end is here, the end of the year, that is. It is time to see how Granny has done on her resolutions. On December 28, 2008 I considered my situation carefully and wrote: For my research: 1. Enter all the information from the BOX into my database. No exceptions, no cheating. 2. I will file all the paperwork in the proper place, not in piles on the floor, desk, or in any convenient box. Results: I believe I made three assessments of my progress

Belle Fellows and Family

These photos were posted on my old site, and I am adding them here. They are thumbnails, which you may enlarge. Belle (Lamunion) and Charlie Tinker. Belle and Charlie married in 1914. Her grandchildren say, “Grandma and Charlie”. I’ll have to ask M-in-L the dog’s name. I forgot it. Belle, and all her grandchildren who lived nearby at the time. One uncle told us that Bill Burgess would not sit down unless Uncle Hi…

Genealogical Breakthrough

…the site. I have indexed some records in this project, and will continue to do so as I have time. Oh, yes, the side trip. I did a quick search and found out that some early Michigan, births, deaths and marriages are now posted in one of the new tools. I quickly downloaded images and entered citations to some records of the family of Henry H. Fellows, b. 1858; and his wife Belle Laumnion. I previously wrote about Belle and her amazing box of…
